Honeymooning In Cuba

You should definitely give your honeymoon as much thought as your wedding, so once you’ve booked the best wedding videographers Manchester has on its books, turn your thoughts to where you and your other half would like to go. Today on the blog, we’re mulling over the benefits of honeymooning in Cuba – and trust us, this would be one stellar first holiday as man and wife. The largest Caribbean island has a lot to offer and it’s excellent value for money if you want to go quite far afield. Check out the Melia Cay Coco five-star resort (upgrade to a Superior Room, which has been built on stilts and stands over the lagoon!), or book your stay in the Paradisus Rio del Oro (also five-star) which is nestled in some gorgeous tropical gardens and is just a stone’s throw away from the stunning Esmeraldas Beach. Once you’ve worked out where to stay, you can start working out your itinerary. If you want to spend your days chilling on the beach and drinking rum (sounds great to us!), then you can definitely do that and more in Cuba, but there are also all sorts of fun activities you can seek out if you want an adventurous honeymoon where you do something different each day. You’re best off going during the dry season (November to April) so you can really explore this historic country. Spend at least a day in the capital Havana and walk along the Malecon. Cruise around and about in a vintage 50s American car (hire a driver if you’d rather relax and check out the views), or make your way to El Floridita – perfect if you’re a literature fan as this was a favourite haunt of Ernest Hemingway. Have a mojito in his honour!
